Case Studies

Rizwan

Earlier this year, Rizwan's family were shocked by the death of the main-breadwinner in the family. His father suffered a heart attack at the age of 52 years, leaving behind a widow and four orphaned children. After the initial shock, the family found themselves in financial turmoil, having never had to worry about the household finances before. Rizwan, who is 14 years old, has found this particularly difficult as he is autistic and had a very special relationship with his father, who loved him dearly. As part of Rizwan's School Review, his Social Worker recommended tha ...

Sugrabai

After her husband's stroke a few years ago, Sugrabai, who is 66 years old, cares for him full-time. He is incontinent and cannot walk independently. Although Sugrabai cares for all his personal needs, and takes charge of all the household chores, he can be very abusive towards her, and sometimes violent. Since her washing machine broke down a few months ago, she washes all his clothes by hand, despite having severe back problems. She has become very weak and extremely depressed. A local charity applied to the Trust on her behalf for £200 to buy a washing machine.

Nancy

.Nancy is 27 years old and was 8 months pregnant when she finally had the courage to leave her abusive husband who would regularly come home drunk and beat her.

Her midwife wrote to us and within 2 days, Al-Mizan Charitable Trust had dispatched a Mother & Baby Kit (worth £60), ...

Natalie

Natalie is a single mother who was divorced after 12 years of marriage to an alcoholic, who beat her regularly. Now with three daughters aged 3, 6 and 8, she struggles to be a good mother, working 20 hours a week in a local nursery.

Her eldest daughter, Shakira, has been offered a place at a leading sports academy but her mother cannot afford the expensive sportswear and equipment that she requires to fulfil her dream of being a tennis player. The Trust offered Shakira a grant of £80 to pay for her team uniform.

Asad

Asad is the only child of elderly and disabled parents. His father suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and has not been able to work for the last 15 years; his mother is a full-time carer. From primary school, Asad quite literally brought himself up, and later supported his family dealing drugs on the estate. Following a messy relationship and a short stint in prison, he became involved in a charity where he received counselling and basic skills training in literacy and numeracy. In response to an application submitted by the charity on behalf of Asad, the Trust com ...
